Thinking Outside the Box~

When we brought our baby chicks home they were in a blue packer. Not very big… 100_9829Then we had one escape and JUMP right out of that box.

So… What Do you think …do they want out? 

Time to think outside the box.

found your blog from the homestead barn hop....our chicks did the same thing...we were using the largest size plastic tote. Then, when they started hoping about, I put cheescloth over the top. Soon after, we found a few walking around in the house and out to the coop they went! :) It's fun and it's our first time at it. Like your blog..following you:)

We just got new chicks also and they want out! So I completly understand. :)

You see, that's the lookout chick. That's the one who's going to tell the others the coast is clear so they can ALL jump out.

You need a bigger box!! Heh heh.

I have one that jumps up to me every time I open the lid. I think she wants to escape and not really see me but how funny they are. I sure hope that doesn't turn out to be a rooster cause then I have to get rid of it. I will be so sad. I want all four.

Ours are 3 wk old now, and that urge to perch has really kicked in. One of them is always on top of the food or water container, and they seem to delight in knocking each other off to get a turn up there. Yes, I'm sure they want out too. :)

Oh, I want chicks! However, I think my dogs would want to eat them :-(

I found your blog through the blog hop too. We have been raising chicks in a homemade brooder. We took a large rubber tote and cut out the inside part of the lid and attached chicken wire to the leftover frame of the lid. We just drilled a few holes and used wire to attach. This way they stay in and our cats stay out.
